PORT ANGELES, WA, Feb. 28, 2014 (Peninsula Daily News ) -Fuel-system problems with Nippon Paper Industries USA's newly expanded biomass cogeneration plant have caused a two-week shutdown of the mill, according to a union official.

Darrel Reetz, vice president of the Association of Western Pulp Paper Workers Local 155, said Thursday he is confident the plant will be up and running again by about March 9.

"We are having some issues that need to be fixed on the fuel system," Reetz said.
